Seniors can maintain their routines and live independently in their own homes with companion care at home.

What Is Companion Care?
It is estimated that about 18 million people in the United States require some type of assistance with their everyday tasks.
This is becoming more common as baby boomers age and subsequent generations grow up expecting and deserving a good quality of life even if they no longer work outside the home.
Companion care services provide essential assistance for those who are unable to run errands or keep up with basic household chores. Companion care provides friendship when needed – this gives family caregivers peace of mind knowing someone will be checking in on their loved one throughout the day.
Care professionals assist care recipients in making their daily lives easier and safer. Some of these tasks include doing errands for them, such as grocery shopping or picking up medications; at other times, they will plan and cook regular meals as well as minor housekeeping responsibilities. Medication reminders are frequently one of the care professional’s duties.
Caregivers are available to help people enhance their quality of life in various ways. They accompany clients on appointments and social trips, and they participate in general conversation and friendship activities.
Aging in solitude is more than a situation; it’s a disease. Companion care provides social engagement and regular companionship for lonely seniors, breaking the cycle of elderly isolation that can lead to health concerns.
We are committed to providing excellent care for our clients, just as we would care for members of our own family.

Companion Care vs. Personal Care
When you need home care for an aging loved one, picking on the appropriate service can be difficult. Companion care services tend to focus on social needs, whereas personal care services stress physical needs.
When deciding on elder care, understanding the difference between companion and personal care is critical because they both give different benefits based on a client’s particular needs.
Home care companions may help with laundry, cooking a delicious meal that isn’t just leftovers from the night before, and errands such as grocery shopping. They also offer emotional support to those who are bereaved or struggling in their daily lives as a result of disease or disability.
We may recommend personal care services for a variety of reasons. Personal care is offered for persons who need direct physical assistance due to a chronic health condition that impairs their capacity to bathe, dress, feed themselves, and so on.
If your loved one struggles with these tasks but does not require assistance from another person to complete them successfully on his/her own, companion care may be more appropriate.
Home care provides companionship so the individual can enjoy life’s activities without needing constant supervision; this type of service also includes meal preparation and light housekeeping duties such as laundry if needed.
